Photographer Simon Puschmann’s new personal series, “CALIFORN-IR”, will have you feeling like you’re in a parallel reality — close to our own world, yet vastly different. The reason? His use of a modified Sony A7R3, shooting in infrared (at 550nm) on a recent road-and-train trip by the West Coast. Simon says: “The pictures were taken on a road trip from LA to San Diego and back by train. Then from LA to Yosemite Park. From there to SF and Santa Rosa (north of SF), then slowly down Highway 1 back to LA.”
The gorgeous views of familiar scenery paired with completely different light- and color scheme than what we’re used to seeing make for some very unique imagery, and we almost can’t take our eyes off of them! Lucky for us, Simon is planning to collect these photos into a new book, an online gallery, minted NFTs, and an upcoming article in German photo magazine ProfiFoto. But more on that later!
